Chulu West Peak Climbing Overview

Chulu West Peak Climbing is considered one of the best trekking peaks in the Annapurna region due to its height which has been recorded at an altitude of 6,419 meters. The Chulu West Peak is an intriguing peek climbing opportunity for people seeking adventure in the Annapurna Region. 

Chulu Peak is one of the most magnificent and stunning mountains. It is a portion of the larger Damodar Himal range in western Nepal's Manang region, which extends south from Chako Peak (6,687m) along the Nar, Phu, and Hunlung Khola.

We will hike through the barren but stunning Manang Valley, which truly does like a piece of heaven on earth. We will be able to take in Manang's bizarre topography and distinctive settlement. The Chulu West Peak climbing journey also takes us to one of the highest altitude Himalayan Passes at 5416 meters named Thorong La Pass which is also the highest point during the Annapurna Circuit Trek Route. 

The trekking route for climbing Chulu West Peak is a spectacular one that offers the most stunning views of the surrounding peaks and the lush Nepali woods. We will also be able to take in breathtaking vistas of the Himalayan peaks Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Annapurna, and others as we make our way to the peak. 

Chulu West Peak presents an exhilarating challenge for both seasoned hikers and novice climbers. However, in order to climb the Chulu West Peak, you must be in good physical shape and have a lot of stamina.

Chulu West Peak Climbing & Trekking Route

After every preparation is made in Kathmandu, we board a private vehicle to travel to Besisahar from where we will take a local sharing jeep to Chame. Chame is the place where we off on foot in the direction of the lovely villages of Pisang before entering the highest valleys of Manang. We stay at Manang for two nights to allow for proper acclimatization and acquainting ourselves with the area. 

After crossing the village of Manang, a base camp can be established within the small valley in the north. Following the base camp, the path is encountered with a smaller North-West ridge that will lead to the main peak. Any attempt to climb the peak from the base camp can be done in a single day as the terrain is not conducive to any camps as the slope to the peaks is very steep. During your leisure time at the base camps, you will be taught how to use peak climbing gear including ice axes, crampons, and ropes by our experienced climbing leaders.

After a successful climb to the Chulu West Peak Summit, we make our return via Thorong La Pass to Muktinath and then to Jomsom. We take a flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and the trip concludes with a scenic drive back to Kathmandu.

How difficult is Chulu West Peak Climbing?

Like other mountain excursions, Chulu West is by no means a simple climb, yet climbers of the novice to intermediate levels can successfully complete Chulu West. However, Chulu West demands more stamina and muscle to climb the long, difficult path through the snow to the summit even if it is theoretically easier than peaks like Chulu East. 

We strongly advise climbers to concentrate on their strength and endurance training. Any aerobic exercise and cross-fits are advised, including long-distance jogging, cycling, and trekking uphill with 10-15 kg of weight on.

The secret to enduring the lengthy period of time needed to finish this excursion is proper acclimatization. When you are over 3000 m+, your body requires these times of adaption as the high altitudes often make breathing difficult. But with the right pre-trip acclimatization, good nutrition, and adequate hydration, your body should adjust and recover. 

Thus, we make sure that your program for this climbing trip includes high camp acclimatization along with steady ascents to higher altitudes. This will allow you to experience alpine trekking and camping, take in the surrounding Himalayas, and build up enough strength to complete your summit ascent.

When is the best time to do Chulu West Peak Climb?

Spring (Late March-May) and autumn (Mid-September – early December) are the two ideal climbing seasons in Nepal including West Chulu Peak since they provide the ideal climatic conditions for a successful summit. These seasons are dry and have stable weather, dry tracks, clear skies, and the best landscape, vegetation, and Himalayan Peaks views,  

In contrast, the monsoon, winter, and summer seasons are less significant because of the unfavorable weather conditions that can make travel challenging. However, if you are well-equipped for the chilly conditions and are a skilled climber, the early winter may also be a great time to climb as the views of the Himalayas are crystal clear and there are fewer to no tourists. But there are risks involved i.e. unsteady circumstances, tea houses may not be open, or even those that may not be well-stocked. Hence, pre-arrangements will be required. 

What permits are required to climb Chulu West Peak?

  • Climbers need to obtain three permits such as:
  • Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS)
  • Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) Permit
  • Peak Climbing Permit from NMA (National Mountaineering Association)

Note: All these permit fees are included in the package and we will apply for the permits on your behalf.

Then, in the evening, we will take a stroll around the tourist hub, Thamel where you can get a glimpse of the lifestyle of this neighborhood. 
Note: If your arrival is in the morning or before noon and you do not have jet lag, we can visit two prominent places of Nepal today before walking in the streets of Thamel. We will first visit Boudhanath Stupa, one of the most important Buddhist sites in Nepal. The giant stupa is also the biggest stupa in the country and one of the biggest in the world.

Swoyambhunath Stupa, also popular as the ‘monkey temple’ among foreign friends, is one of the oldest temples in the valley whose history is related to the formation of the valley itself. It is located on a hilltop in the center of Kathmandu and is seen from almost every corner. The stupa temple is worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists. It is a great example of religious harmony in the country. 

The three durbar squares in the three medieval cities in the Kathmandu Valley are equally beautiful and the numerous palaces, temples, and courtyards there openly display the combination of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Tantrism that characterizes Nepalese culture. All three durbar squares may appear to be the same for first-timers but their history, value, arts, and details in craftsmanship interestingly vary.

FAQ'S

Q. 1. Can I climb Chulu West Peak as a solo?

Solo climbing to Chulu West Peak or any other climbing peak in Nepal is not allowed unless you are accompanied by a climbing guide from an authorized travel operator in Nepal. But, for the trekking part up to the Base Camp, you can trek independently. 

Q. 2. What is the best season to do Chulu West Peak Climbing?

The spring (mid-March – April) and autumn (mid-September to early December) are considered the peak and best seasons for Chulu West Peak climbing or any other peak climbing in Nepal. The weather is stable, skies remain clear, temperatures are pleasant and the views are at their best during these seasons. 

Q. 3. What should I do if I have altitude sickness?

Our packages are designed considerately and include the required acclimatization. But, AMS is something unpredictable and can harm anyone regardless of age, gender, or experiences once we are at high altitude. As we know prevention is better than cure, we should always be aware of the situation and keep ourselves hydrated, move slowly, get enough sleep, and eat a proper diet. Carrying AMS medicine like Diamox can come in handy. And in case you notice any symptoms, you need to inform your guide ASAP as the mountain guides are well trained regarding this situation and make the best decision there. Also, the travel insurance with emergency evacuation will do the best justice if case it is in need. 

Q. 4. Can I rent the climbing equipment?

You can definitely rent or buy new climbing equipment in Kathmandu. If you need to rent or buy, we can recommend the best stores. 

Q. 5. How to stay in touch with families and friends during Chulu West Peak Climbing?

Once you are at a high altitude, regular connections are difficult to maintain. There are Wi-Fi or internet facilities in some of the teahouses and phone networks on the trekking route. But, there will be no phone connections once on the climbing route. But, there will be a satellite phone to connect to your home which charges you some amount that is not included in the package cost. 

Accommodation

Accommodations During Chulu West Peak Climbing

Your accommodations in Kathmandu and Pokhara will be a 3-star standard category hotel on a twin/double sharing basis. While you are in the Annapurna Region during the trekking period, you will be sleeping in the best available guest houses or tea houses on a twin/sharing basis.

Many of those guest houses do not have attached bathrooms and western-style toilets but some of the places such as Muktinath and Jomsom have those services. 

If you prefer a single supplement service, we can manage them but only in the city areas at an additional cost and prior information. In fact, you can upgrade the hotel in Kathmandu and Pokhara with a few extra dollars. However, it is occasionally impractical while trekking in the mountains, especially during the peak seasons. 

The accommodations we use during the climbing journey that start from the Chulu West Peak Base Camp is the tent lodging. It is also based on twin sharing and includes foam mattresses and sleeping bags. Toilet facilities will be available in the climbing portion with the appropriate natural preservation.
